8:17 am
. divide is real it's becoming more violent and that's why you need to separate the communities and have everybody take care of their own. in q-q. province we need a leader of iraq's minority turkmen community he's taking us to meet the newly formed militia they face extermination from sunni militants he tells me but he doesn't trust the kurds to protect them either. fishmarket disarmed. people. we arrived to find a deserted village the families have all fled for safety these men stayed behind to defend the land. or to go up they used to be drivers teachers farmers and businessmen they took up arms two weeks ago after sunni extremists slaughtered dozens of their people in

8:21 am
eighteen children the user nicknamed average joe placed a lot added he wanted to trade president zuma for someone with similar skills just cheaper to run and more clever many south africans have indeed been criticizing the president for becoming a bit too costly for the budget for instance he spent twenty seven million dollars just to restore his country house which was fixed with a new tennis court of football pitch bad and other high life accessories that's despite many in the country still not being connected to the sewer system while around thirteen million are thought to live on just two dollars a day even though trading humans is a legal this isn't the first time a living person has been put up for grabs on e bay recently a ten year old girl from england tried to sell her own grandmother describing her as annoying what could only the biggest bid reach twenty thousand dollars but was taken down shortly after while one australian man actually sold his own life the lot included his house his motorbike and
8:22 am
a car his business and even his friends and archer separated with his partner and decided to start afresh his old life fetched three hundred five thousand u.s. dollars and now he's reported to live on an island near panama with a new girlfriend so really almost anything can be found on e bay even a partially eaten group cheese sandwich said to bear the image of the virgin mary thatching a biblical twenty eight thousand dollars no wonder presidents are being listed as well. any more stories for you on r t dot com just like this one about unusual congratulations from israel i mean forces drop hundreds of lollipops over palestinian territory containing the hamas messages marking the start of ramadan also. warning a pizza in the sky why the russian company that launched drone deliveries could be fined for its invention. in an effort to
8:23 am
save local jobs and industries politicians often call in people to buy domestic but in this modern world is not really possible one part space journalist decided to give it a go surviving only in french made products for ten months. went to find how they fared. frank skinner person really in this day and age the answer is ninety six point nine percent if you ask french journalist special car the flight attendants and for goodness of the. rules of this experience were to get rid of everything that was not french and only use products that god most of their added value on french soil with an average salary of one thousand eight hundred euros a month i found myself in a situation where i had to buy everything again including furniture. inspired by government pleads to stick to find products to stop the conscience decades long industrial decline the problem is that there aren't many products like in stainless
8:24 am
that a purely strikes what really surprised me is how much food we import each time i see a foreign product i think it's crazy because it could have be made in front but it's not. but benjamin's biggest surprise was that shoppers probably don't know whether french like goods are really called. today's rules of the european union a crazy if you take the should for example and you just so the buttons and firms you have the right to put a made in france label on it it's the last operation the product undergoes that matters. even though it's not hard to find economic patriots like benjamin it is hard to support the french more than me according to some experts claim the point commitments are opening the door to point competition and force in french companies out of business. estimate that in france there is roughly one plant closing every day between two hundred forty and two hundred sixty plants a year absolute protectionism like in north korea is absolute that what everybody
8:25 am
around the world agrees on that when we go from one extreme to another where there is no regulation at all industrialization comes from globalization but it doesn't happen because some bad guys took the jobs of the french but because the french companies think we will make more money by. purchased them with patriotism takes some effort but shoppers here are giving let it go and the hope of saving the business is keeping them in the country retail experts say there's just so long as they play their one solution being put forward to level the employment standards within the european union and police local industries so that it's cheaper to buy for products or get the manufacture of the ball and i love my wife and i love to benefit from things and i think it's impossible to live completely with french products it costs too much anyway and it takes a crazy amount of time because it's hard to find needless to say benjamin. borders again but he's paying attention to labels and ecological recycle products matter
